It’s Been a (Pretty) Good Year When It Comes to LGBT Real Estate


This week, the Bea Arthur Residence—an 18-bed homeless shelter for LGBT youth—announced that renovations would be completed in 2016, the most recent item of good news for the LGBT community, which has finally been getting the recognition and real estate it deserves of late.

Most notably, last month the Stonewall Inn was designated a New York City landmark in a unanimous vote by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, the first in the city to be recognized because of its importance in LGBT history. (And in non-real estate related matters there was, of course, the milestone Supreme Court decision that legalized gay marriage throughout the United States.)
